We told you there would be exciting things happening in 2019. Foster Dogs is officially opening a branch in Nashville, y'all!
For all those who stopped at our Petcon booth last weekend, we thank you for showing love to our adoptable dogs and cats! Two full days at Petcon 2018: 44 adoptable animals from 14 local rescue groups, 50 volunteer animal handlers, and 2 of Chloe’s Fospice Friends. This was a huge team effort to continue Building a Foster Community. 20 adoptable cats, 24 adoptable dogs. What an incredible weekend!
Black dogs do not fare well in shelters; they are often the last to be adopted and most likely to be euthanized. Even though black dogs are just as loving and playful, shelter staff can have a hard time photographing them—and a good photograph is crucial to creating interest for a potential adopter.
Foster Dogs’ Executive Director Sarah Brasky was featured this month on PetInsider's podcast, discussing our absolute favorite topic: fostering! Listen, and share this inspirational 40-minute easy-listening podcast.
Baby Piglet arrived as a foster dog on March 4, 2017. I enthusiastically anticipated cuddling and comforting the tiny special needs puppy, and learning to communicate with and care for such a disabled dog. This optimistic fantasy quickly turned to “What have I gotten myself into?” when the reality of Piglet hit.
